Immediately advanced cardiopulmonary resuscitation and defibrillationwill be required for SCA victims. Delay means death. Survival rates in advanced economies with trained general public and access to automated defibrillators is around 7 % .In India because of lack of presently situation is very gloomy.
After recovery your electrophysiologist will investigate to find out the cause.He may do following tests
Coronary angiography : diagnostic angiogram to rule out blockage in arteries of heart
